      Description

      Now there are a lot of log tags [1], and it looks like many more will be added. I start to wonder what 'ihop' or 'rt' would do ...

      Would it make sense to add help information that can be printed to the user, like

      #define LOG_TAG_LIST \
        LOG_TAG(alloc, "this prints something about alloc") \
        LOG_TAG(age, "blah blah") \

      $ java -Xlog:help=alloc
      alloc - this prints something about alloc

      $ java -Xlog:help=all
      alloc - this prints something about alloc
      age - blah blah
